GRAVETTE The December meeting of the Jolly Good Times Club was held Friday, the 18th, at the Billy V. Hall Senior Activity Center with five members present.
President Jeanne Hubbard opened the meeting with the pledge of allegiance to the flag and members sang “We Three Kings”. Jeanne’s devotion was a reading of Psalm 100.
Susan Holland answered roll call with a poem, “Celebrate Christmas”, Betty Howard with a joke, “It might be worse”, Jeanne with funny quotes from hospital charts and Eda Montag told of a Sunday School student hoping for a new teacher. Chia Greer said she was just “halfhere”.
Betty read the minutes of the November meeting and they were approved as read. There was no treasurer’s report.
Jeanne gave thanks to each of the officers and to all present for their support of projects to help the community. She gave each one a trio of ornaments from a small tree that served as the table centerpiece.
Susan gave the program, reading A Santa Suit Does Not a Santa Claus Make from Leo Buscaglia’s “Seven Stories of Christmas Love”.
Members took a quiz on fruits before adjourning to enjoy the Center’s annual Christmas dinner.
